About Lori Leven Jewelry (http://www.NYAJewelry.com
Lori Leven’s contemporary jewelry is known for its simple, wearable elegance and fine artisan approach. She works in both sterling silver, 14k rose and white gold, and 18k yellow gold, often applying surface texture that allows light to wonderfully reflect off each piece. Varied and unusual gems, collected from the designer’s extensive travels, often are incorporated into her streamline designs. Ancient tribal art such as the tattoo designs of the Marquesan Islands and the Maori of New Zealand serve as a tremendous wellspring of inspiration for Lori’s work. All of these elements combine to provide sculptural jewelry that has a powerful impact while maintaining an aesthetic of subtle beauty. Available at Ten Thousand Things and New York Adorned.
